|Bonjour to all of you,
A large number of images have been posted recently where members are deliberately breaking the rules on notes. One example is the deliberate 'padding' of notes by repeating non-alphabetic keyboard characters.
In future, any such image noticed by the moderators will be removed and will not be re-instated under any circumstances.
For those in any doubt - this is the relevant section from the Terms of Service (TOS)
"All photos must contain a note of a minimum of 40 characters in order to be uploaded. Only [B]meaningful[/B] notes will be considered, so please do not try to get around the issue by posting nonsense such as " fhgdfhd rthdfjgbnd fgjkfk". The following other nonsensical notes will also be deemed inappropriate: using your camera description/ exif data as a note, clicking the space bar until you have reached 40 characters, repeating the same words or partial phrases over and over e.g.: "this is a flower this is a flower" and finally: notes that merely describe the obvious, e.g. : " this is a man standing in front of a church".Notes that fit any of the above criteria may be subject to deletion by our moderators."
Kind regards - Viviane / TrekNature Moderation Team
